. don't mess with evolution. texas is about to approve science textbooks that might be used for the next ten years. but there are questions about how evolution will be presented. the documentary the revisionaries details how in 2009 the state board of education adopted changes that some say opened the door for creationism or intelligent design. popular science guy bill nye has been unspoken about the teaching of creationism. here he is with big think. >> i say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your -- in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we've observed in the universe, that's fine. but don't make your kids do it. because we need them. we need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems. >> since its release last year that video last received about 6 million youtube views and it's generated a response from the group answers in genesis. >> creationists of course are very happy to teach their children about evolution and teach the problems with it and teach their children

on "consider this." >> welcome back, we're talking about texas science textbooks and whether they should leave the door open to talk about flaws in evolution. kathy i want to go to you. we're talking about texas textbooks here. what is their broader influence, why should people in colorado or anywhere else care? >> there's a reason we said don't mess with textbooks, not don't mess with texas. that's because texas is the largest consumer of textbooks in the country and when you're in this business you want to sell as many texas books as possible. science perpetually books is paramount concern for many publishers and has happened for decades the books that are adopted here in texas then get pedaled around the rest of the cup because it's very expensive to change them. and folks don't even realize it but in california they figured it out and they introduced a bill that said they would ban texas textbooks, it got so bad, texas has such a bad representation of politicizing, experts in the subject matter to get what's right in the classrooms. >> our community has picked up about that point on politi

as a composer, science is a step behind art, but we were able to find that. just from a player's standpoint, as you develop your skills over time, maybe studied in school, self-pop, but you build up certain skills. when it comes time to improvise or sit down and start to work out something musical, sometimes you have to forget all that stuff. push it out of your mind. it is a handy tool to be able to bring back and say, what am i doing here? i am and 3/4 time, 12 measures of this, and then it is going to go to a bridge or a second measure or something. >> to clarify one point you were talking about, using alternate to earnings -- for those who got not know, there is a standard way of turning the guitar. there are people like alex and david crosby, and joni mitchell, who tune differently to spur creativity or just to play around. there is a great sense of play in that. most of your pieces are in non- standard to make. among those, there are even some standard ones and you do not use those. >> you bring up an interesting point. a lot of times, musicians use these alternate to earnings as a wa

into san francisco. in addition we have a tourist sector going on, life sciences going on. everybody is innovating in the right places and doing it here in san francisco and there is a strong spirit and we will continue growth and jobs everybody. we want to help everybody out and support each other and that comes to what we do here in san francisco. today i am announcing a new initiative and clean tech sf initiative which we launching with all of you. there are three part it is of this. the first part is we're working with the california clean energy fund. i know jeff anderson is here today as part of them and he's going to be partners with us, and he's partners in every branch that we doing. the first thing we're doing as clean tech sf we will establish innovation zones in san francisco. what does that mean? we asked last time when we were here in san francisco and how can we help? perhaps we can help with the resources that the city doesn't use to the highest use. let's take our space. we have a lot of assets under utilized. how can we allow the demonstrations that you'r

claims about vaccines causing autism have been debunked by science. many church members were sitting ducks when the virus hitched a ride from halfway across the globe. >> reporter: it started with a visitor from the mountain eagle church near ft. worth, texas. a visitor who traveled overseas, then at church hugged parishioners and handled babies in the church day care. unknowingly, spreading a dangerous measles virus. terry piersons is the pastor. >> we've had a few families affected by this, so we want to shut this thing down. >> reporter: more than a few, 16 cases of the measles originated including seven adults and nine children. the youngest is just 4 months old. health officials say 11 of the victims have never been vaccinated. not surprising considering the pastor's televangelist father has long spoken out getting immunized, suggesting a link to autism. listen to the recent broadcast posted on the church's website. >> as parents we need to be a whole lot more serious about this and being aware of what is good and what isn't and you don't take the word of the guy that's trying t

's a constantly evolving science that will change the way that we live. that will make -- she wrote this in 1962, that will make 1984 look like a comic book. that until we learn to encourage scientific developments, foster new medical care, and in a way that will make that medical care assessable and affordable to all who need it, we will have failed science and science will have failed us. so she argues that we have an extraordinary history. and that we are beginning to face our shortcomings in our history. that race and ethnic prejudice and religious bias are the lead that will unravel american society. that will makes so weak that we will lose our position of moral leadership in the world. she talks about being a custodian of the environment, and what that means in terms of the development and wages. she talks about international trade and the battle for the living wage. she talking about our tendency to see human rights as siloed in only -- as only affable to people who live off our shores and concern of rich intellectual elite who want to tell the poor how to live. she said that is the heig

this as a science and math kind of gal. you think this is a great test. >> as women we are always lied to about size. >> i told you i was inverted. >> i'm sorry. i do love the fact that they use this in math class to get kids interested in math and science. as they get older the jobs out there are see yens, mathematics and technology. they need to have teachers who are engaged and make science and math fun. this is exactly what the teacher did. he should -- he deserves a pulitzer prize for his experiment. >> does anyone want one? >> kind of. >> i think dan said yes. >> the stuff is spelled with one "f." >> i used to love the double stuff oreos. you dip them in milk. but i can't eat any of that right now or maybe for the rest of my life. it goes straight to your you know what. >> hips? >> do you ever take the double stuff and make a quad quadruple stuff? >> would anyone like bill to eat one? >> i am still recovering from our white castle segment last night. i am still corked up. let's put it at that. >> if you were kids would you think this is a good experiment? >> this is a great experiment. with th

31st in math and 23rd in science versus other developed countries. this is according to the highly regarded pisa rankings. our education system has barely made any progress in the last half century. education levels can drastically change for better or worse, nations like finland, south korea and canada have made huge gains in international test scores where norway has recently fallen. amanda ripley is the author of the incredible book, "the smartest kids in the world and how they got that way." this book is for everyone in the education debate in the world, especially this country. you've been around the world, you looked at top-performing countries. you collected data on all this, which is so important, because so much what happens in education are opinions ask feelin -- and not data. you also enlisted the help of some field agents. you got people studying abroad in poland. they noticed a difference there. >> the first day of school they were wearing black tie, and it was very formal. you could tell people took their education a lot more seriously here. >> the students care here.
